SAFETY FIRST: Observing the Sun without the proper protection may result in serious personal injury, including permanent eye damage and blindness, and/or damage to equipment. Never point an optic at the sun without an approved solar filter on the front of the optic. For direct solar viewing, viewing the sun through an optic, or when using cameras with an optical viewfinder, ensure your filter is ISO 12312-2 (also written as ISO 12312-2:2015) certified. Never use photographic neutral density filters for direct solar viewing, viewing the sun through an optic, or when using cameras with an optical viewfinder.

Adapt your conventional nighttime Schmidt-Cassegrain (SCTs) or Edge HD telescope to safely view the sun with Celestron's EclipSmart White-Light Solar Filter. Designed specifically for select 8" models in their catalog, the filter ring is modeled on the scope's original lens cap for a safe and snug fit. For enhanced safety, the filter comes with two touch-fastener strips and four tabs that adhere to the filter and retaining rings to make sure the filter doesn't accidentally come off.

Made of a proprietary Mylar film, the filter is ISO 12312-2 compliant for safe solar viewing, blocking 99.999% of intense light across the entire visible spectrum and 100% of harmful ultraviolet (UV) and infrared (IR) radiation; resulting in high-contrast views of the sun in a neutral color. At just 4.2 ounces, the filter will provide the safety required to observe the sun and all phases of a solar eclipses without adding significant weight to the front of your OTA.

    EclipSmart White-Light Solar Filter for 8" SCT/Edge HD OTAs is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent solar filter for my Celestron AVX 8 SCT scope The filter fits my scope perfectly and it provides just the right amount of white light attenuation to permit safe solar viewing and astrophotography. Note: The first one that I received was flawed, but B&H promptly exchanged it with a new one in perfect condition.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great accessory for observing the Sun This is a great accessory at a good price point. You get a nice, natural looking orange-yellow sun. It also fits more snuggly than my regular Celestron lense cover. I'm guessing Celestron did this to help prevent it from accidentally coming off while observing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Celestron 8 SCT solar filter I bought this filter for my 1980's Celestron 8. It is a perfect fit. The supplied velcro straps were not needed. The sun is beautifully rendered with clear sun spots. Inexpensive and works well.
